APC marketing team is visiting in Oklahoma.

The American Pecan Council has hired a marketing team from Weber Shandwick to lead the marketing plan for pecans. The team began their second immersion tour this morning. In June, they did a Western immersion tour.

This will be their tour of the Central region. They visited Landgraf Farms near Ardmore, Oklahoma, where they explored a native grove.


Pecan South

The American Pecan Council, the council for the Federal Marketing Order for Pecans, met today at the Noble Research Institute in Ardmore, Oklahoma. It was a full day with a number of tasks at hand. We will continue to have updates in Pecan South, and take a look at the The American Pecan website for more details!


Noble Research Institute consultant Will Moseley discusses wildlife depredation for the pecan management class this afternoon.


Peruque pecans are starting to fall to the ground thanks to all the wildlife activity. Blue jays, deer and crows are ready for some fresh pecans! Since Peruque are one of the first pecans to ripen, critter depredation can be severe.


Pecan South

Thoughts and prayers for all of those in the path of Hurricane Irma!

The safety of all is the primary focus, but it is also worrisome for pecan growers with trees that are almost ready to be harvested. Dr. Lenny Wells from the University of Georgia, and Pecan South contributor, has information on his blog about how pecan growers can weather the storm.

Stay safe!

The American Pecan

He’s known as a Founding Father, but in the world of pecans, he’s a founding farmer. Truly enamored by America’s native tree nut, Thomas Jefferson planted hundreds of pecan trees, even while serving as our nation’s President.

Started pecan crop load thinning today at Cimarron Valley Research Station. Timing is determined by cutting the pecan in half to see embryo development. Thinning should be completed while the kernels are in the water stage between 50-100% expanded. The first picture shows the Kanza kernels in the water stage expanded to about 75%. The second picture shows Pawnee about 60% and Maramec about 50%.


Yesterday's Horticulture Field day had a great turnout! Everyone enjoyed the pecan thinning demonstration!
